    Hey y'all,

    What did you think of the red and white wine at Dreams?

    Thanks for your opinions!

      Shoot, I cant remember the name of the house wine.

      But it was def drinkable. I wouldnt go buy cases of it, but I sure drank plenty of it there and didnt hear any complaints. Most of the male guests in our group are scotch drinkers tho.

      Alot of the females who normally drink red, drank white but because of the warm temps and array of seafood.

      We found the white and red house wine to be pretty decent. Like Erika mentioned, it wasn't incredible or anything but definitely good enough to drink. We also mainly drank red (a)because it was warm, (b)lots of seafood and ©the wine was super chilled so it kind of masked the "non-amazing" taste :)

      They also have nicer wines for more $$. I didn't drink wine there (I am spoiled and right next to napa) so I just drank mixed drinks.

        Very good question I was curious about that too. Do you think it's worth it to pay to 'upgrade' I guess to a bit nicer wines for the wedding reception? Or will guests just make do?

          Alot of my guests had like a glass of wine, and moved to mixed drinks. Most people drank mixed drinks the entire time.

            Like you Tammy, we're from San Francisco, so our guests are used to *very* nice wine, and I'm just wondering for the reception only if it would then be worth it to upgrade to something nicer. Any idea about cost? What about a champagne toast? I can imagine that the champagne is not so tasty?

              This is just my opinion...but stay away from the house red and white wine at Dreams unless you are itching to have a hangover the next morning. I'm not a wine enthusiast either...but it was nasty. I think your best bet would be to pay and upgrade for the better quality wines on their menu (which I did hear from our wine enthusiasts was decent) or skip the wine altogether and enjoy the mixed drinks (which I highly recommend!)

                Great, thank you all for the thoughts and advice! I'm finding myself lost in details these days . . . there's just so much to think about!

                  I mentioned this thread to my mom and now she is convinced we should upgrade the wines. Probably mostly for her benefit, but most of our family will drink wine so she feels its important. Also she told me she'd pay for it!

                  Before I contact Mariana just wondering if anyone has any info on the prices and what the choices are?
